4. - Introduction

This Chapter is concerned with the selection of wiring cables for use in an electriðcal installation. It also deals with the methods of supporting such cables, ways in which they can be enclosed to provide additional protection, and how the conductors are identified. All such cables must conform in all respects with the approðpriate British Standard.
This Electrician's Guide does not deal with cables for use in supply systems, heating cables, or cables for use in the high voltage circuits of signs and special discharge lamps.
